CIVET THE COFFEE MAKER


Say Hello to the Civet: The Maker of $600 a pound coffee
Yes, it’s true — this mammal, native to Africa and Asia, is responsible for pooping out the world’s most expensive coffee, called Kopi Luwak. Civets are fed coffee cherries, and during digestion the animal’s enzymes mix with the coffee beans before they, ahem, pass through, giving the beans a unique, bitter taste. See how it all happens…

The Cherries Are Chosen
A farmer in East Java, Indonesia, picks coffee cherries to feed the civets.

A Whole Team at Work: Hand-Picking the Cherries

Gathering the Dung With Gloves…
In East Java, workers use gloves to clear the results of the feast.

These are not Peanuts and Nougat.

Because a very limited supply is produced each year, civit coffee can cost up to $600 per pound.
